Football agent Rob Moore has shared his view on why Njabulo Blom hasn’t been called-up to the Bafana Bafana team recently. This is despite having a good season at St Louis City SC.

Bafana head coach Hugo Broos believes that the former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder has a bad attitude hence he couldn’t be part of the team for 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. However, Moore is convinced that Broos is not getting the right information regarding Blom injury.

“It’s either Hugo Broos is not getting the right information regarding Njabulo Blom. The club did medical testing and the medical opinion was that Njabulo must not worry because he would be okay by the time he was meant to go to Bafana camp,” said Moore at Metro FM with Andile Ncube.

“It’s hard for Blom to defend himself on the statements made by coach Broos. If he cannot even have a meeting with the coach so he can explain his side of the story. Maybe Blom is not one of the coaches favourite players”

This all happened within a period of Monday to Wednesday. The club said that Blom doesn’t need a certificate because the nature of the injury was that he would be okay to play for Bafana. It’s not difficult to see the match in question. Njabulo injured his shoulder during that match and was taken off” 

“The first time, SAFA chose to not believe the player. His club when Blom had covid and this was confirmed by his club. Certainly, Njabulo Blom is not a liar. If Blom is not his player or not the coaches cup of tea then perhaps coach Broos must say that”

With a month to go before the Afcon begin at Ivory Coast it’s unclear whether Blom will be part of the team.
